  • He has always been at the top of the standings throughout the weekend, but he didn't expect such a result either. Luigi Coluccio (Tony Kart Racing Team – Tony Kart – Vortex) routs the competition with an absolutely perfect race: at the start he moves to second place, after which the slow neutralizes the situation and, on the restart, the Italian overtakes René Lammers (Parolin Motorsport – Parolin – TM). Since then no one has been able to reach him.

  • Already with the title in his pocket thanks to the points obtained in the qualifying heat (finished in first place) and in the super heat (won) on Sunday morning, Lammers spends the final in fourth position and avoids any type of trouble. The Dutchman thus won the European title, the first for Parolin Motorsport in the Senior category, thanks to an extraordinary series of results throughout the championship.

  • Enzo Tarnvanichkul (Prema Racing – KR – IAME) on the podium again, even if this time he finished in second position. The winner of the recent round of the Champions of the Future Euro Series shows that he has good pace throughout the final, but Coluccio is too far away and unable to close the gap. The Thai finishes in front of his teammate and now reigning former European champion Kean Nakamura Berta (Prema Racing – KR – IAME), third.

  • The uphill weekend of Alex Powell (Prema Racing – KR – IAME) ends with a fifth place. 28th in qualifying, the Jamaican plays his cards well at the start and gains a total of 4 positions. The 2022 European vice-champion, this time, is third in the general standings.

  • Positive final from Fionn McLaughlin (VDK Racing – KR – IAME), always at the top of the standings throughout the Italian appointment. The Irishman finished sixth on the finish line, ahead of Tomass Stolcermanis (Energy Corse – Energy Corse – TM), seventh, and Dmitry Matveev (KR Motorsport – KR – IAME), eighth. David Walther (Koski Motorsport – Tony Kart – Vortex) also did well, ninth.

  • The Top 10 ends with Ean Eyckmans (Leclerc by Lennox Racing – Birel Art – TM), tenth. Instead, Mattia Colnaghi (CRG Racing Team – CRG – IAME) slips 11th, followed in the standings by Maciej Gladysz (Ricky Flynn Motorsport – LN – TM), 12th, and by Gabriel Gomez (CRG Racing Team – CRG – IAME), 13th. The Brazilian is the big loser this weekend, never feeling completely at ease in Cremona.

  • After the pole position obtained in qualifying, Louis Iglesias (CRG Racing Team – CRG – IAME) raises the white flag three laps from the end: a bitter pill for the French despite the potential shown.
